With lashings of passion fruit, this is the Pornstar Martini of the Sauvignon Blanc line up. The grapes for this wine are picked from two parcels of fruit from Yealands' Seaview Vineyard, where Sauvignon Blanc vines are grown on New Zealand's most coastal vineyard. The vineyard is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough: high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall which produces a smaller, thicker-skinned berry with intense fruit flavours. This wine is a blend of fruit from two different blocks on the property - one warmer, sheltered inland block and a coastal block. The wine brings together in harmony the diverse spectrums of the blocks; the warmer site contributing the expressive aromatics and the cooler site giving the mineral backbone and length. According to the winery, vital to their success is the nurturing and preservation of the land and their solid commitment always to put in just as much as they take out.

Winemaking

Two parcels from the Seaview Vineyard were selected for this wine and harvested individually over two days. The fruit was de-stemmed then pressed gently prior to cold settling for 72 hours. The clear juice was then racked off and each parcel was fermented separately using two different yeasts. A long cool fermentation followed to capture and enhance the pure aromatics. The wine was blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
